Winter stream trout fishing in BWCAW to open Dec. 29


A 2012 Legislative change in fishing regulations will allow winter stream trout fishing on all lakes entirely within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) to open earlier, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Stream trout angling will open Dec. 29 and close on March 31, 2013, for all lakes entirely within the BWCAW boundary. This is the same as the lake trout season for lakes within the BWCAW.
